The Bartlett Police Association makes Christmas Merrier for Elijah

Patrolman Casey Knight, Elijah, Patrolman Tony Webb at Toys R Us having a good time!

Nicky, Elijah's mom, was at her wits end. Bills were coming in, and her part-time job only allowed 30 hours a week (and she was lucky if she got that many). She didn't have a clue as to how she was going to pull off Christmas this year. In the past seven years, since Elijah was a baby, she had worked at a good full time job in Bartlett. That job had been gone for more than a year now, along with her savings. So she Googled "Shop with a Cop" on the advice of a friend. She got the president of the Bartlett Police Association's, Patrolman Anthony Webb's, Email address and dropped him a note - but she didn't hear back from him.

"And then he ended up calling me yesterday (Wednesday)," said Nicky with a laugh. A blessing in disguise? "I figured I had just Emailed the wrong person. I couldn't find anything about it on the internet, just one little article, so I didn't know." Nicky said she was going to have to decide whether or not to keep her car running or give her son a Christmas. She knew she had to have the car to get back and forth to work. The Bartlett Police Association took over from there. Elijah loaded his basket with his favorite stuff  - Pokeman! The 8 year old had a great time alongside Patrolman Webb and Patrolman Knight at Toys R Us.   

Where there are hard working people in this country who are trying to support their families, it is up to us as a community to help in every way we can when things get tough, because we never know when we might end up there ourselves. Nicky is an example of a good mom and good provider for her son who just needed a little hand. And when she gets back on top, she will remember it and help someone else. Thank You, Bartlett Police Association for letting us share in your Christmas!

Bartlett Police Association sponsored Shop with a Cop

The Bartlett Police Association took the kids from Tennessee Baptist Childrens Home shopping at WalMart on Hwy 64 to fill some of their Christmas wishes. It was hard to tell who was having a better time the kids or the officers. The kids spent about an hour filling their shopping carts with toys and clothes.

Children are like wet cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression. - Haim Ginott
